  • "Good directions to location."

    Disapointed no welcome pack, emptying the dish washer(thought housekeeping would jave done this, no toilet paper, no rubbish bin liners in bin but bin very wet with something at bottom, no instructions about where to put refuse) poor housekeeping. Beds very comfortable and linen good and clean. Interesting heating system, coming on at night, althougj nice to have towel rail for drying shower towels. Would rate maintenance higher but! as above. As we should have been in Greece fed up about housekeeping. Enjoyed area and will visit again but not sure return to Midships. Will be interested in response.

    Hello Anna, Thank you for the feed back.I can only sincerely apologise.Its not normal for housekeeping to have left the cottage without doing these things. Housekeeping sincerely apologise too. My contact details should have been passed to you when you completed the booking process. I would have had this resolved had I known. I am once again sorry for this. I am please you enjoyed Whitby area,it is beautiful,and if you do wish to give us a second chance and stay again. I will ensure not only is the cottage left as I would expect it, there will be a special complimentary welcome pack for you. All the best, Kind Regards M Ahmad Property Owner
